This cranberry cinnamon honey butter is the perfect topping for toast. Easy to make in five minutes in a food processor. Don’t serve boring bread!

I love making compound butters of all sorts–the possibilities are endless! My vanilla bean butter remains one of my favorites, so much vanilla goodness packed into it! Or try pumpkin-honey butter or gingerbread butter. Perfect for fall.

About this cranberry cinnamon honey butter

This butter is perfect on any bread, but on toasted bread? Oh my. It melts down and the cranberries almost turn into a jelly-jam type substance.

It. Is. So. Good.

Also, I’d highly recommend spreading it on this homemade oat bread. The flavors are just perfect for each other.

Almost as if they were made for each other.

Oh wait, they are.

P.S. Try this cranberry cinnamon honey butter on whole wheat pancakes! So delicious! It would be so good on pumpkin bran muffins, too.
